“This collaboration with world-renowned Michelin chefs in the industry, by creating exquisite dishes that will surely elevate the culinary dining experience of our guests at the resort really excites me and the whole team. We want our guests to experience fine dining and brassiere concept at its best considering Chef Jean’s specialty, and this, we will continue to enhance our culinary delights and do our utmost to cater everyone’s desire,” Michael Wieser, CEO of Lily Hotels & Resorts, said.
